LINBIT®’s DRBD software can cluster any application that runs on Linux with the reliability of a SAN. As a testament to the software’s stability, it has been integrated into the main-line Linux kernel since 2010 with the Linux Kernel 2.6.33 release. Since the soft-ware performs at the block-level in the stack, its replication performance is unparalleled.
Over 15 years ago, LINBIT successfully created DRBD software in order to replace expensive SAN and NAS hardware with resilient, commodity servers. Now, LINBIT is focusing on tackling cloud and virtualization environments with their suite of Software-Dened Storage technologies.
The DRBD software will work with any application or database and can be used to replicate multi-ple applications at a time. With LINBIT’s Enterprise Disaster Recovery Support Service To Replace SAN & NAS Systems, you’ll rest easy knowing you’re in good hands.
We don’t sacrifice performance for availability
Works with every major Linux OS
Synchronous Data Replication for Transaction Safety
We have been around for 18+ years
DRBD is a block device that synchronously mirrors your storage. It is capable of replicating a single data set up to 32 times. Anything you put on a hard drive or disk array can be mirrored utilizing DRBD.
LINBIT disaster recovery support services combine DRBD, Corosync, and Pacemaker & LINBIT’s Enterprise Support offerings. Any application or virtual machine can be made highly available with LINBIT HA by enabling DRBD as your backing storage.
Our disaster recovery support solution includes a Python based API allowing for any application or appliance to interact with it. With Auto Promote, DRBD doesn’t require manual interaction to make data accessible.
Many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) leverage DRBD to enable High Availability and redundancy within their appliances. Because DRBD is part of the Linux Kernel, adding HA and DR to your appliance is possible, no matter what software sits on top.
The kernel driver is part of the upstream kernel as of 2009. Many of DRBD’s features are sponsored by users. Have a feature or use case you’d like to see in DRBD? LINBIT can develop it!
Our solution supports RDMA on Infiniband, Sockets Direct Protocol on Dolphin Interconnects, and Zero Copy Receive on Intel 10Gbe. RDMA enabled systems see 200% increased throughput with 50% less CPU utilization. Read Balancing enables you to increase your read performance by 70%
